NOTE: The 2013 NABE Economic Policy Conference has concluded.  Thank you to all who attended.  

Presentation slides and other valuable links are posted on the sessions page.

Join us next year at the 30th Annual NABE Economic Policy Conference, February 23-25, 2014 in Arlington, VA.

The premier national event illuminating the global and domestic challenges facing business economists, policymakers and markets. 

Once again NABE brings together an unmatched lineup of key U.S. monetary and fiscal policymakers, top economists, global business leaders and analysts. Addressing the theme of “Global Challenges, Domestic Choices: Options for Economic Policy,” scores of speakers will grapple with ongoing global economic uncertainties and the difficult and sometimes conflicting economic policy choices and outcomes confronting governments, markets and business actors in 2013 and beyond.

From monetary policy at the outer limits, to fiscal strains, to financial reform and regulatory complexity, to skill shortages, to higher education bubbles, to the future of the housing sector, to the state of the states, if you want to remain on top of the central debates raging in the nation's capital, register now.


The 2013 NABE Economic Policy Conference will take place at the Washington Court Hotel, near Capitol Hill in Washington, DC:
